I intend to use this topic to document all the food I eat. Others are encouraged to do the same. Discussion of said food, or related topics such as cooking is also welcome.

Here for instance I have a pair of bean and cheese tamales from a local taco truck along with my favorite Arizona tea.

Anything made in a deep fryer, especially french fries.
Basically, you buy the deep fryer, buy some...not sure what it's called in English, some kind of oil? You then fill up the deep fryer with oil up to the indicated level, and plug in the deep fryer to a wall socket, and wait for the oil to heat up enough (as indicated by usually a light), then throw in the food. Once the food looks tasty enough, you pull out the food again and turn off the deep fryer. (The oil can then be reused for quite some time - you only have to renew the oil when your food becomes really shitty because of it.)

Rice and any canned vegetables are damn easy as well.
Throw some rice/canned vegetables in a small pan and fill it with water, about as much as is needed to have the water a bit above the food. Then turn on the gas and put the pan on the gas. In the case of canned vegetables, the shit's already cooked, so you only need to let it there until it's warm. In the case of rice, once it starts boiling (it gets all bubbly and stuff), turn the gas to minimum level (not off!) and leave it on for as many minutes as the packaging indicates (the rice I cook takes 7-8 minutes to cook).

Cooking's pretty easy if you don't do really complicated stuff.

pic related: The deep fryer, the quickest and perhaps cheapest way to make food once you have the oil in. It's going to kill me someday...

Let's face it, if the guy's never had deep-fried food before he's going to be abusing that fryer for months before he gets tired of it.
>> No.10180  
>>10179
That's why I included equally easy instructions to make rice with vegetables~

Actually, you can also microwave the vegetables instead. I usually freeze vegetables in meal-sized portions, then microwave them as I cook the rice.

You can't abuse the fryer non-stop for months anyways. After a couple weeks of abuse, the oil will become shitty, and your food will taste bad. You have to go replace it, which is kinda a pain to do.

Dinner: Two hamburgers.

I never understand why people are always difficult and put all kinds of junk on their hamburgers. The best hamburger is just bread + burger. No more, no less.

I like to add lettuce and tomatoes to mine to give it a nice cool feeling to it. I stay away from sauces though.
>> No.10516  
>>10509
Personally, I can't stand a plan hamburger. Without any condiments or lettuce it just gets incredibly dry and boring. Bread has practically no taste, and hamburger is pretty bland by itself, so I need something that has some flavor to it on my burgers.

Do your sandwiches also consist of bread + meat?
>> No.10517  
>>10509
How is giving food more flavor being 'difficult'? That's like the whole point of preparing food, making it taste better, otherwise you might as well cook the meat and leave it at that. Do you not bother seasoning your food either?

>>10516
On the other hand, it sounds like you should be using better buns and beef if you think they have no taste. Or maybe you just have a poor sense of taste.

You know, speaking of plain meat, boiled pork is amazing.
>> No.10524  
This notion of plain hamburgers angers and confuses me.

If I wanted meat I would grill a steak.

If I wanted bread I would...eat bread.

Burger is as burger does. Plain burger is just that. Plain.

That being said, I can appreciate a meal with subtle flavors. If quality ingredients were used, I would eat a burger as just a patty and buns. I just am not sure I understand the absolute preference for a lack of condiments or toppings of any form.

A burger is something that is personal to you. My favorite? Venison patty, lightly toasted sourdough, just enough mayonnaise to cover the bread, dill relish, and cheese. That doesn't mean that I will stick to that combo every time, though! It changes to suit my needs. Burgers are so obedient. The cheese used will be different depending on availability or desire. Monterey jack, cheddar, swiss, provolone, feta. Sometimes I will add sauteed onions, or use them to replace the relish. Occasionally mustard will find its way onto my burger. Sometimes, I go with the tradition of my motherland and just have a big burger with lettuce, tomato, onion, dill pickles, cheddar, ketchup and mustard. When in Rome.

Maybe that's why the burger is so closely associated with the USA. Burgers are about Freedom and Excess. Fuck yeah. I am not culturally inclined to take it easy when you remove these values from my burgers.

I can see that you are honestly attempting to return the burger to its essence through simplification. Unfortunately, I have to say that I truly believe you are misguided.

Rice and canned vegetables. Both can be very cheap. For meat, it's a lot more difficult; anything except junk food is really expensive (at least it is here, might be different where you live), so I usually just eat a hamburger with my food (€1.60 for 12 of them).
If you're seriously going to cut costs, it might be useful to read up on nutrition a bit. Contrary to popular belief, a healthy diet isn't just a diet with not too much fat, there's tons of things in different foods your body needs, and you need to compose your diet in such a way that you get enough of all of the necessary nutrients.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_nutrient

If you're not too worried, you can just switch diets and when you feel there's something wrong, you look up the diagnosis to see what nutrients you may be lacking. When I first started making food for myself, I didn't get sufficient vitamin C intake, as I don't eat any fruits, so my gums started to become painful. Since then I've started to eat more spinach and sometimes broccoli, and so my diet got more balanced.

Here's another image that gives a better idea of the contents.

The tacos are just cilantro, onions and carnitas with a homebrewed green salsa on corn tortillas that were thrown on the griddle for a bit.

The torta is beans, steak, cheese, mustard, ketchup, pickled jalapenos, lettuce, tomato and salsa. Possibly more ingredients, I'm not completely sure. The bread, similar to the tortillas, is placed on the griddle until it is soft and lightly toasted.

This is a new sauce a restaurant near where I live is working on. I was asked to try it and provide feedback. It's a Bourbon based barbeque sauce. It was good, but wasn't very strong. Being a bit of a sweet sauce, it didn't match the peppered chicken that they used in my opinion.

I guess it counts even if it isn't a meal, right? I suddenly realized that I had all the necessary ingredients as listed here: http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/banana_bread/ but threw a bunch of cinnamon in as well, because a world without cinnamon is a place I never want to live in.

Here's all of the components I used, going mostly from right to left, just like a Japanese manga!! -- Salt, sugar for faggots, an egg, baking soda, cinnamon, smooshed banana, vanilla extract, melted butter, white whole wheat flour, mixing bowl, wooden spoon, gross looking banana peels and one last banana, and the loaf pan in front.

Finally, I put it in the oven and set the timer for 50:00 because my oven has a bad habit of cooking a bit too fast. The sweet smell of ripe bananas fill the house, slowly giving way to a richer, fuller smell. Maybe my hands are just dusted in it, but I can smell cinnamon.

It's done! It's still cooking for a bit when I take it out -- the top is still bubbling a bit where the split happened, and the smell erupts from the oven, it's like I'm visiting my grandma except I'm alone! I tried loosening it around the edges as the thing said to cool it on a rack, so I removed the rack from the toaster oven, trying to get the loaf out of the pan.

I did something dumb and just sort of tipped it over, ripping off the entire bottom crust, allowing the rack to cut into the loaf. I give up and put it on a plate, and eventually foil wrap it. Also, I eat the bottom crust and it's pretty good! I thought it looked overbaked when I took it out, but if anything it is (and it likely is, even) underbaked.

Two extreme closeups after this, and then I promise I'm done.

I took a bunch of silly pictures again but they're mostly frustrating. I used a pot that was too small to boil the pasta, and despite needing to boil only for 90 seconds, I managed not to boil it enough.

I might go back and get some more sometime just to test my abilities again.

The noodles are squid ink pasta. The size was officially "angel hair," the thinnest option, but it was still slightly thicker. They made them right at the shop, and I got a sauce there too, just a simple marinara.

I could have done a lot better if I was concentrating and simply thinking things through more. It's not like cooking is actually hard.

Here's one, though it doesn't look too appetizing. It was still pretty tasty, everything aside. It's hard to ruin spaghetti.

Oh no, I forgot to bump the topic again.

Does everyone test the readiness of their noodles like this (by throwing them at the wall), or is it weird? If it sticks, they're usually ready. It didn't totally stick, though (note also that it still clearly has some of the bends it did when it was in the pasta -- fresh, not dry), and I neglected to observe that. Else, I would say it's a relatively foolproof technique. I admit I mostly do it for the fun element, though. It's like a very small food fight.

what you do is after warpping it up, wrap it again in thin wax paper and panini press it.
don't do it too long or the bread sticks to the wax paper. a light-medium brown will do.

You should eventually get to this point. You may have to add in more flour than the recipe calls for, if you didn't measure the wet ingredients properly (I did in this instance). Just keep adding a little more at a time until it stops sticking to your hands. This can be done during the kneading.

Alright, so I'm cooking a fucking duck today. I've never done anything with whole birds, but here goes nothing.

I've been defrosting it the past 48 hours. It's still somewhat frozen on the inside, but that ain't too bad.

Following Ms. Delia Smith's advice, I let it dry a bit, draining all possible moisture with some kitchen paper. Supposedly it'll make the skin more crispy or something, idk.

Aaand, to the oven it goes, for three hours.

It's apparently a bad idea to let it sizzle in its own fat, so it's on a grating to let all the fat drip down on the tray. It can be used later for whatever you want to use duck fat for.

The ciabatta is a high hydration dough. We use "bakers percentage" to express hydration (level of water compared to flour in the dough).

This cibatta is 75% hydration. Which means the weight of water in the recipe is 75% of that of the flour.

In this case 450grams of water and 600 grams of plain flour.
Salt is at 2% (12 grams) And the yeast around 3/4tsp all up I think.

The night before I remove a portion of yeast, flour and water and mix it up. This is the preferment to add flavour and strength to the bread. (well, that's the intention anyway.)

In this case it's 250grams of the flour and 150 grams of the water and 1/4tsp if dried yeast.
This is mixed up and left to sit in a cool area overnight. Even with such a small amount of yeast it will rise.

The next morning the remaining flour water yeast and salt are combined with your pre-ferment. The preferment is cut into little bits to help mixing. Just put it all in a bowl and mash together with your hands. It will be very sticky.

Now with such a wet dough you can't knead it as such so what is needed are a number of stretches and folds every 20 minutes or so.

After mixing until everything is homogeneous wait 20 minutes or so. Then tip out onto a clean counter or a tray or something where it can be worked with.

Stretch it away from you and then fold a third back onto itself and do the same at the front onto what you just folded. Turn it around 90degrees and do the same thing. It will be sticky.

If you do this every 20 minutes you will feel it take on a more dough like consistency rather than a pile of goop. Just leave it covered somehow and stretch and fold in the same directions each time.

After 4 or 5 folds put it back in a greased bowl and let rise for 40 minutes or so somewhere warm. Remove and cut in half (at this point I find rolling it in some rice flour makes it easy to work with so it doesn't stick), shape (make into a rectangle I guess) and lay out on some floured cloth or paper. Turn oven on to 225 with the rack in the middle. Then put somewhere warm for the loaves to rise for 30 minutes.

Tip them upside down onto a baking tray being very gentle with them. At this point try grab the ends and stretch them out a little long ways this will make the veined look.

You need some steam in the oven so a small amount of boiling water in a hot pan will provide it.

Put the loaves in. Wait 15 minutes then rotate the tray and leave for another 15 minutes. (or slightly less, it really depends on the oven, you don't want the crusts getting too thick.)

Take out and cool.

It a bit of messing around but makes a nice loaf. Youtube has some good videos that explain the folding process.

I'd say most people wouldn't like it unless you ate it with some sort of seasoning(I had it with lemon). Most people don't like boiled eggs right? I like them.

So, I'm going to try making some gumbo. The ingredients for this particular gumbo include...

* Honey marinated chicken
* Habanero sausage
* Chorizo sausage
* Shrimp
* Lots of onion
* Ball pepper
* Half a bottle of pepsi cola
* Red wine
* All kind of spices

I've understood that celery is a kind of an integral part of gumbo, according to some, but ah well. I have picky people eating.

It is.
Traditional peking duck is noted for its crispyness.
You ('re supposed to) eat it with raw green onions (read: that stuff that look like leeks), sweet duck(bean) sauce and wrapped in fresh mini-flatbreads that are EXTREMELY thin. It's also delicious even as a standalone dish though, because it's not very salty.
Best enjoyed fresh out the oven, like most chinese food.

Ah, to add to this.
For those of you who are able to cook and want to try some home-made chinese ethnic cuisine for variety, try some pan-fried flatbread with steamed/boiled whole-pork shoulder/butt with sweet duck(bean) sauce and fresh green onion. Cut up the pork into strips after you cook it, then make a wrap with the flatbread with as much sauce and green onions as you want.
Do remember that while it's a lot less work to fry a lot of flatbread, it tastes best fresh.
To select a good sweet-bean(duck) sauce for this specific dish, pick one that's very thick if possible. Avoid watery sauce. Don't use plain bean sauce/paste unless you're sure it's what you want.

Granted, it's pizza to begin with, but I always pair chili oil with some sort of boiled pork - something that's not as dry as chicken breast but still could use a bit of juice as opposed to something like pork belly.

I just drizzled a bit over the top of it, and as you can see I went fairly easy on the cheese. That said, I quite like things with a fair bit of olive oil on them anyway.

Curry udon! Slurp slurp slurp.

I made my normal Indian curry mix of turmeric, garam masala, paprika, cumin and coriander along with some ketchup for sweetness and fish sauce for richness. The udons were from one of those vacuum sealed sachets. It came out pretty well, but as you can see from the photo it looked kinda unimpressive.

you seem to like baking items with things inside of them.
i use this recipe regularly, although sometimes substitute other fillings and i use a lot less years (30g is insane, even half of that is a lot). the oil in the dough makes it a real pleasure to work with.

Greetings, my fellow cooking anons. I am thinking of making a cake to eat at school with friends to celebrate a birthday. What cakes do you suggest that can last a couple of days and still taste great? Also, they should be easy to carry. I make a pretty damn good (and simple) French chocolate cake, and I made a baller ambrosia cake for Mother's Day. Might just swap the orange for chocolate. What cakes do you like, /bun/?

Make a victoria sponge imo, and like >>25534 said, the way you cover it is important too. My mum sends me cakes in the post on occasion, and if you wrap them in a layer of greaseproof paper then a couple of layers of foil they come out still fresh and moist after a few days.

Inspired me to try out an ebikatsu burger. A++ would recommend to anyone else, even if you aren't a big fan of shrimp (I'm not). Kind of wish I had some greens for the burger, it looks a bit sad without them. Oh, and the sauce I made was a Sriracha and mayo blend instead of that honey mustard he used in the video.

shouldn't you steam the pepper after you stuff it?
I'd recommend pork if you're going to keep experimenting with stuffed peppers. When it comes to fully cooked meat, it's usually either pork or chicken, but chicken is too dry.
>> No.25718

Steam it how? I don't know anything about cooking. I fried the potatos and carrots, mixed them with the tuna and mayo, stuffed the peppers and put them in the oven for 15 minutes or so. Didn't really know what I was doing to be honest. If we get any pork or chicken I'll try making stuffed peppers again, but I don't think these will last for long. I'm a fan of eating my eggs with pepper slices for breakfast.
>> No.25725

don't worry, neither do I.
well, the point was to cook the peppers. they looked raw in the picture.
I'd imagine steaming to be
1: get stew pot
2: fill bottom half with water
3: put a steam rack on it
4: put the peppers on there
5: cover it with a lid
6: boil the water, the peppers get steamed and cooked
I'd imagine them to be soft when they come out.

Toad in the hole!

Even more traditionally British than >>25628. I made a nice red wine sauce, but I kinda fucked up the gravy browning so it came out black as midnight. I managed to dilute it to a kind of deep ruddy brown, but now I have about half a pint of the stuff left over. Oh well, I got the shallots and sausages perfect and the whole thing was delicious, so all's well that ends well.
